RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a type of computer data storage, that enables the data to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. This makes the RAM significantly quicker than other types of storage devices like DVDs or HDDs where all the information ought to be read so as to access certain data. In case you have a shared hosting account, the amount of memory your web applications can use can't be fixed and may regularly rely upon the free memory that's available on the physical hosting server. When using a standalone server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory which shall be for your use at all times and will never be allotted to other customers even when it isn't in use. This is valid with our virtual and dedicated web servers.
